My boyfriend and I had heard about the tour online and decided it would b an interesting way to spend an afternoon as he had a keen interest in the underbelly series. Our tour guide Alex was full of information and clearly took great passion in his work but about an hour into the tour I was starting to lose... More

As a fan of all things crime - this tour was a must. You are collected in a mini-bus with mostly like minded others - to head off on a journey to visit key sites of crime including the stories from the 'Underbelly' genre and others. Steve our guide was great and motivated - he drives the bus and tells... More

My husband and I are great fans of Underbelly series so thought this would be fun. Our tour guide was fantastic and it was obvious he really enjoyed his weekend job!! Lots of interesting crime stories and the discounted ticket to the Old Melbourne Gaol was appreciated. Loved the brown paper bag treats!

My husband and I had a great time on this very interesting tour, Even though we live in Melbourne we learnt lots of new and interesting facts about our city. Travis was our guide and he was great, he made us feel we were the only ones on the tour, with his friendly and informative manner.

I booked this tour manly for my boyfriend who is really into the gangland stories of Melbourne. My knowledge about it was average but that really didn't matter cos our tour guide Travis was a great story teller. Not only was the stories interesting but at the same time we got to see a lot of Melbourne.

This tour is a very interesting and totally comprehensive look into various crimes throughout Melbourne's history. Right back to Ned Kelly days, through to Hoddle St, Painters and Dockers and (I think!) most intriguingly the more recent happenings as documented in Channel Nine's "Underbelly". Not only are you told so much information about each location and situation, but you are... More

I wanted to do the tour as something a bit quirky and because I had watched the Underbelly series. Not sure I would do it again as upon reflection it seemed to glorify all the crime that had occurred in Melbourne to date, which is my issue, and nothing to do with the tour operators. Was interesting to see different... More
